It is harmless, but I want to use the license information for automatic checks of licensing issues. 
So it might be nice if the information is set up correctly.

It is a glitch., though harmless:

The licenses in the metapackage package.xml only affect the files inside the metapackage folder itself, so really only that package.xml itself.

Packages are not "part of" a metapackage, they are merely "referenced by" zero to many metapackages.
